Dinoland USA

[Disney Vacation Planner]

At A Glance Dinosaur themed area of Animal Kingdom, sponsored by McDonalds.


DinoLand U.S.A.: Bolstered by the partnership between Disney and McDonalds, Mickey D's is sponsoring this whole area. The section of the park features everything you could ever want to know about nature's extinct reptiles.

DinoLand designed to be an interactive adventure area where guests play with and learn about creatures that haven't been around for millions of years. Overhead, as you enter the land, a 50-foot tall metal Brachiosaurus welcomes you to the land.

Attractions: DinoLand houses some of the most truly interactive exhibits in the "Kingdom." The Boneyard, an interactive playplace where kids can dig for fossils, excavate for extinct species or just play in the sand. The Boneyard features two sides (one with slides and climbs, the other an excavation site) connected by a rope bridge.

Countdown to Extinction is a heart-stopping thrill ride of the first order. Viewers go on an interactive journey through the history of the great beasts. Guests travel back to the late Cretaceous period - right as dinosaurs are about to be exterminated by a world-wide meteor shower - as part of a new time-travel experiment. As with any experiment, things go a tad awry, with dinos roaring and meteorites falling around every turn. You might even bring back a dino or two with you.

DinoLand also features the "Journey into the Jungle Book" adventure show that lets park guests get an up-close, live-action view of Mowgli, Baloo, Shere Khan and rest of the gang from Disney's beloved story. The show is presented in "The Theater of the Wild" on the southeastern most corner of the park. It features an abbreviated version of the animated classic, mixing live players and music with puppetry arts, a la the "Lion King" show at the Magic Kingdom.

And don't be surprised archaeologists and paleontologists walking around the land try to get you into the action. The Streetsmophere people who thrill the crowds at Disney-MGM have created a special "Dinomosphere" interactive theater experience for the streets of DinoLand.

Dining and Shopping: Since Mickey D's is sponsoring DinoLand, the area's restaurants features, guess what, Big Macs and fries. McDonald's flagship restaurant in DinoLand is called Restaurantasurus. It features a daily character breakfast from 7-10:30 a.m. called "Donald's Breakfastasaurus." The regular lineup of Quarter Pounders, Happy Meals and Chicken McNuggets are also to be had at Restaurantasaurus.

DinoLand will also be home to the famous fry kiosks from where guests can get McDonald's famous fries on demand, as they can with "The Jungle Book" Theater Snacks stand. Dino Diner features smoked turkey legs and drinks, a la Tomorrowland's "Lunching Pad" in Tomorrowland at the Magic Kingdom.

For the dinosaur lover in your group, Chester and Hester's Dinosaur's Treasures has pre-historic goodies to suit any taste - from the educational to the just plain fun.

Analysis: DinoLand U.S.A. truly has something for every age bracket. Kids will litterally "dig" the hands-on approach Disney gives to the dinosaur experience; and parents will like the fact that kids are learning while having fun. Older kids and adults will appreciate the and love the thrill ride.

The Boneyard is a great place to take kids and let them go crazy. Parents are also invited to get into the act, but should be advised that the rides are designed for smaller ones. Watch your heads on the slides!
